Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School has a long history serving the community. The perfect example is the very active MCPS Key Club. As the most active club in the State of Alabama, Montgomery Catholic’s Key Club members have been recognized on the State and National level for their efforts.
For the 2015-16 school year the Montgomery Catholic Key Club has already made an impact in the River Region. Current Key Club members at the school have given time in service to The Spina Bifida Association’s annual Walk-n-Roll at the Montgomery Zoo, helped children with arts and crafts at ARToberfest located in historic Capitol Heights, travelled to Camp Chandler to help with the Halloween Carnival and the Montgomery Zoo for their annual event Zoo Boo and work the Alabama National Fair. Averaging approximately 60 members per year, the Key Club is the largest single club on campus, involving nearly 20% of all high school students.
Over 1000 hours of service have been completed so far. The next few months will have the club helping serve meals and delivering donations at the Salvation Army, collecting donations for the Montgomery Area Council on Aging, helping with the Humane Shelter Gift Wrapping Fundraiser at East Chase, helping needy families through the Christmas Clearinghouse, doing yard work for the elderly, and volunteering at Reality and Truth Homeless Shelter.
The Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School Key Club is led by president Patrick Gregorious (senior), vice president Marissa Dogan (senior), Chaplin Agnes Armstrong (senior) and secretary Anna Nutting (sophomore). They are sponsored by teacher Mrs. Jeanene Crenshaw.
